Abstract

Paolo Emilio Bensa’s figure is representative of the peculiar dichotomy, which distinguishes Italian juridical culture in general and, very especially, Genoese one, between the 19th and 20th centuries. The typical attention paid to legal practice, mostly influenced by Napoleonic Codes and French methodology, is now associated with the latest influence of German Pandectist doctrine, providing an original approach. This paper presents a new perspective on Bensa’s multi-faceted educational path, which led him from Genoa to Leipzig to follow Bernhard Windscheid’s courses and paved the way for his peculiar scientific and didactic production, culminated in the translation of Windscheid’s Lehrbuch. .
Le portrait critique de Paolo Emilio Bensa est représentatif de la dichotomie particulière caractérisant la culture juridique italienne, et génoise en particulier, entre le XIXe et le XXe siècle. L’intérêt typique pour la pratique, généralement influencée par la méthodologie et le code français, est à présent associé aux plus récentes suggestions de la doctrine du Pandectisme allemand et donne vie à une approche innovante et originale. L’article se propose de présenter une reconstitution nouvelle de la formation hétérogène de Bensa, qui le conduisit de sa natale Gênes jusqu’à Leipzig, pour suivre les cours dispensés par Bernhard Windscheid, en posant les prémisses d'une tradition didactique et scientifique spécifique.
